Multiplying two digit by one digit numbers
How to multiply a two digit number by a one digit number
(for example 59 * 7).
- Place one number above the other so that the ones'
place digits are lined up. Draw a line under the bottom number.
- Multiply the two ones' place digits (9 * 7 = 63). This number is larger
than 9, so place the six above the tens' place column and place the three below the
line in the ones' place column.
- Multiply the digit in the tens' place column (5) by the second number (7).
The result is 5 * 7 = 35. Add the 6 to the 35 (35 + 6 = 41) and place the answer
below the line and to the left of the 3.
